FAIS Library Using QR Codes to Highlight Books
Posted 01/20/2017 04:00PM

The next time you visit the library, make sure you have your smart phone. Some of the books now have QR codes on their covers, which when scanned will link to a personal book review by one of our Lower School students. Additionally, on the walls of the library this month we have the art work of 5th graders reflecting on the book they have been reading, Le Reveur, by Pam Munez Ryan (translated from The Dreamer) during their unit Poetry and Visual Arts. QR codes on their art posters, which depict the characters from The Dreamer, link to small films which were created around the book's characters via the website Voci.

Announcements

Joining us for tomorrow's (Saturday, November 3) annual Fête du Vin celebration? Get ready to taste delicious wines from 11 different wineries, enjoy scrumptious bites from Hunt and Gather Catering, Murray’s Cheese, and Angel Bake, and build community among FAIS friends (and buy your favorite wines, of course). Can't make it to the event? You can still order amazing wines -- all wine ordered before November 7 will be available for pick-up on Monday, November 19... just in time for Thanksgiving! Plus, 25 percent of all proceeds from wine sales go back to FAIS to support programs and initiatives that make our school special. Buy wine here!

If you shop on Amazon, you can raise money for FAIS! AmazonSmile is operated by Amazon with the price, products, and even Prime, but with the bonus of donating 0.5 percent of each purchase to your chosen charity. Visit this link to start shopping!
